The key to any successful project is using the right construction method based on the project conditions and requirements. This course, which covers auger boring, pipe ramming, pipe jacking and the pilot tube method, rounds out NASTT’s new installation training seminars. NASTT New Installations Methods Good Practices will provide you with the information you need to determine the best method(s) to use under various project conditions. By attending, you will become familiar with the trenchless methods used for grade and alignment control and guidance; understand the constraints, advantages of limitations of each method; learn the steps to follow to “knowing the underground;” how to establish the invert for a proper launch; learn the history, sizes, equipment options, process of excavating through different ground types, pipe materials, ways to track where the pipe is, installation and jacking forces and ways to reduce those forces; and determine the best method to apply using actual case studies to illustrate what can go wrong if the project is not designed for success.
